's an easy company for main street america to hate. so now all of a sudden all of this attention on, you know, potentially, allegedly goldman sachs defrauding its investors. and this gets washington angry and rightly so. it gets main street america angry. and people are saying, something has got to be done. that's when the politicians step in. >> i'm trying to do a whole show on the anger is out of control but yet in this instance. okay. i'm a guy paying my bills, paying my credit card bills. as i understand this, billionaire john paulson, okay? who basically gets in bed with goldman sachs and says i'm going to go out and find the worst mortgages i can find. you're going to help me put this product together. i'm going to bet against it. ha ha. by the way other guys at goldman sachs go out and sell it to your customers while i'm shorting it. how do they explain that as anything other than fraud? the fact that paulson was putting this product together? >> i don't think he possibly can. >> aren't they saying every institution bets on both sides? >> in other words you've got a situation where peo
into a socialist united states. today, the heritage foundation said that america is no longer a free nation. it's a mostly free nation. they rank countries every year and dropped america, so now, we're living in a not so free united states according to the heritage foundation, so people are picking up on this. there was a lot of anticipation about what the health care bill would do. they're already acting as if it's the worst case scenario. first, we had obama, the foreigner, the guy wasn't born here, coming in and taking over the government. and now, he's imposing soci socialism. there is a -- this has become the battle front for people who are worried about the very nature of this country. >> steve? >> one thing i think we've got to keep in mind, this didn't start with health care. remember the 2008 campaign, the fall of 2008, where you had people showing up at obama rallies, republican crowds calling him a socialist, saying this was a beginning of communism in the united states. that was before he proposed health care. one thing we try to understand the motivation on the right, i think what
to obey the laws. that's where these ideas came from. >> but the united states of america -- >> don't deny the truth of this history. >> don't deny all of it is my point, pat. >> why are republicans in the south, like rick perry talking about succession, why are they talking about nullification? why is bill mccomb running down there for governor? this is the lynn ingo of the ci war fight? why are they ripping off the scab of the civil war? >> because it's becoming a dislike, and a lot of people are coming to detest their government -- >> the north. >> no, not the north. the government of the united states. >> they like their state governors and they don't like the national governments, that's right. there is a real feeling of people that they don't like this government. >> who was right in the civil war? >> i think in a way both sides were right. lincoln had a right to save the union. i think they had a right to go free. >> you cannot defend the right to slavery. >> robert e. lee was right to defend his fellow -- >> maybe if guys like him would have stood up and stuck with the union. if yo

opinion. this gets back to this anger in america concept that seems so prevalent now. you've got to ask, why was goldman creating these securities and puts people in a position to have to defend them after the fact. i don't think that's necessary hi fair to goldman sachs to have to put them in that position. they believed they were helping their clients, but it just didn't look good. >> well, not only doesn't look good, but makes people feel that this is the smoking gun. accurately or not, people feel that tells you everything you need to know about the way wall street is operating. this is what lloyd blankfein had to say -- there's reporting today "the new york times" that in fact, the investigators are now looking at how high up this actually went and whether all the way up to the ceo there were people involved, top executives at goldman who signed off on what this one man was doing. >> but if i understand what we've heard so far about the core of goldman's defense, it won't have to do with who in the firm knew about it, but the merits of the case. whether that was a material fact tha
america to see. see, they're the base. they're old. they're angry. they're white. they're scared. they're misinformed. they watch fox. they live in the bullet-point culture. let me give you something real ease city to understand here tonight. if you're watching, you righties. barack obama has an "f" rating. meaning fail. suck. bad. an "f" rating from the brady campaign against gun violence. now, i want the informationally-challenged voters to listen very close to me when i say this tonight. that president obama does not want your gun, and i think you should understand that. he hasn't proposed a single thing that would infringe on your second-amendment rights. not one. not one thing. the more people that buy into this anti-government nonsense coming from the right, the cloclos cloclos closer we're going to get to another oklahoma city. if we face another anti-government attack like the one we saw 15 years ago i think we could spiral out of the control. there could be a lot of civil unrest in this country for no reason. only because we in the media seem to focus on this. and i'm doing it
like never forget, miners keep america's lights on. but then saying we've got to not let this happen again. and so we expect to hear the president say we can't bring back the lives of these 29 miners lost. we can do everything possible to avoid such a tragedy happening in the future. alex? >> and the president doing so on the heels of at least getting a little bit of a break with his wife there in north carolina. we weren't given a lot of details about what they were doing. they want to have the press following them around but seems like a good break for them? >> reporter: the press was able to follow in the motorcade, kept at a little bit of a distance but every now and then you got a glimpse of them. the president and first lady went without their daughters but they were able to spend time with friends who flew in from chicago so they've had dinners and golf and that sort of thing. >> a little grown-up time. athena jones at the white house. >>> msnbc will air the president's remarks at the memorial, our coverage begins at 3:00 p.m. eastern for you today. >>> a newly released group

obama said in his speech, we are an imperfect vessel for this imperfect union in america. i would be humble about the possibility. >> one more. reverend. >> martin made the comment once or twice that the masses must come together and actually force our leaders to make the changes that we want. given that racism and races have to hide their racism in order to get to places of positions where they can do what they do to keep the others down, will we really have a conversation on race? will folks really take the sheets off, so to speak, and be honest where they stand as it deals with persons of another color? >> you probably don't watch fox news. go ahead. head. >> i mean, you know, the question is really how do we create a climate, or continue to create a climate for what we're doing today? america has to walk and be better. america, as a nation, is incredible. look to our most recent world catastrophe or two. haiti and chile. americans -- it did not matter -- americans rolled up their sleeves and gave and will continue to do that. haiti will need help for a long time. i hope and pr
's not an after thought in america's quest for a brighter future. it is an essential part of that quest. so today i'd like to talk about the next chapter in this story. the challenges facing our space program are different and our imper tifs for this program are different than in decades past. we're no longer racing against an adversary. we're no longer competing to achieve a singular goal like reaching the moon. in fact, what was once a global competition has long since become a global collaboration. while the measure of our achievements has changed a great deal over the past 50 years, what we do or fail to do in seeking new frontiers is no less consequential for our future in space and here on earth. so let me start by being extremely clear. i am 100% committed to the mission of nasa and its future. [ applause ] because broadening our capabilities in space will continue to serve our society in ways we can scarcely imagine. because exploration will once more inspire wonder in a new generation, sparking passions and launching careers, and because ultimately if we fail to press forward in the purs

"hardball" is next. good night. >>> tea time. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, tea for who? what are the tea party people up to? good question. they rallied in boston today home of the original party and sarah palin got the crowd going by saying she doesn't mean to say president obama's downright un-american, just his policies are. richard nixon was good at this sort of thing. there are those who say the supreme court is communist. i wouldn't say that. she's playing the same old trick like saying it's time to reload but i'm not talking about guns. keep throwing out the red meat but denying she's got her brand on it. what are these tea party leaders up to? that's our top story tonight. >>> perfect timing. bill maher is with us tonight. he's got things to say about ex-governor palin and her unmerry cotillon of tea timers. plus are, republicans pretending to prote
. this is not the sort of stuff that will fly with most americans out there. 20% of america, maybe half the republican party, perhaps. but not most americans. this isn't going to get job done in 2012 that's for sure. >> ron, i think once you investigate it for antiamericanism i think that you are on her list. here's michel bachmann on president obama on his nuclear pm policy. i'm confounded. since ronald reagan was one the great ideologist about getting rid of nuclear weapons in this war. let's listen to michelle bachmann. >> we found out that the president said that he was going to change the united states' strategy on dealing with nuclear weaponry, did this shock everyone? so if in fact there is a nation who is compliant with all the rules ahead of time and complied the united nations on nuclear proliferation, if they fire against the united states, a biological weapon, a chemical weapon, or maybe a cyberattack, well, then we weren't going to be firing back with nuclear weapons. >> i don't get that. i guess i'm waiting for the applause line there. but i guess i never thought of using nuclear weapons
on what they want to do for america. they got a lot of hat. they haven't got any cattle. get your cell phones out, folks. i guess you could say we could have fun with this one tonight. tonight's text survey question is, who do you think is a more dangerous psycho talker? sarah palin or michele bachmann? text "a" for palin, text "b" for bachmann to 622639. joining me now from minneapolis is mayor r.t. rye balk, also a democratic candidate for the governorship in the great state of minnesota. r.t., good to have you on tonight. i guess you could say that minnesota is ground zero now. this is now a national race. how do you think minnesotaens are going to respond to sarah palin getting 10,000 people to show up and spew out all the crazy stuff they've done all along? how are they going to respond to this? >> ed, we're the happiest people in america right now. every time sarah palin comes to down she drops more money here. remember that money she spent at kneeman marcus during the convention? the fact of the matter is, minnesota is an entertainment hub. prince, bob dylan, garrison keeler, mi

states of america can do. and we are not going to impose any kind of peace upon palestine and israel and that is that. it was a surprising, considering what we've been reading, chris, about the possibility of the united states might lay out what we think are the basic outlines of a just and lasting peace. my guess today would be we're not going to do it. >> the question i guess is for the israelis to answer. they have to answer it in the first instance before we get to it. we could suggest an alternative over there. mr. mayor, it seems to me this is the challenge. israel has to unite the moderate arab world such as it is. jordan, the saudis, the egypt n egyptians, all the emirates. it has to get them on their side against iran in terms of iran's nuclear threat. they can't do that step unless they can find something over palestine, right? so the irony is they may have to give something in terms of the middle east situation in order to build the kind of armada, if you will, diplomatic armada they need to shut down the iranian nuclear threat. do you think that's a tradeoff they're thin
rights powder keg ready to ignite all across america. >> i have instructed members of my administration to closely monitor the situation and exam the civil rights and implications of this legislation. but if we continue to fail to act at a federal level, we will continue to see misguided efforts opening up around the country. >> you can't deny it. immigration legislation has been a political land mine for politicians for years. >> i just want to make sure, do you, new york senator, support the new york governor's plan to give illegal immigrants a driver's license? you told the new hampshire paper is made a lot of sense. can you support his plan? >> you know, tim, this is where everybody plays gotchya. we have failed and george bush has failed. do i think this is the best thing for any governor to do? no. >> nobody has had the right answer for this for a long time. president obama made a promise to move on immigration reform. now he's got to live up to the promise. numbers clearly show that hispanics are the fastest growing ethnic group in the united states. they make up 46% of our popul
entertainment. in the past four decades have the media been objective or doom and gloom. america remembers oklahoma that dark moment in our nation's past gave some in the media a chance to compare tim mcveigh's evil deed to tea party protesters. should there be outrage? concerns over iran's nuclear threat grows. memo from defense secretary makes headlines. are the media missing the mark? with suspended anchors and internal strive is msnbc in trouble? on the panel in week writer and contributor judy miller. cal thomas. jim pinkerton and kirsten powers. i'm jon scott, fox news watch is on right now. >> the president: as i said on this stage two years ago, i believe in the power of the free market. i=> that's how the president began his address to wall street's titans telling them increased government oversight will b

is required now of all americans to keep america safe. listen. >> in big ways and small, resilience is a pillar of our security and there has never been a better example of that than right here in oklahoma city. >> reporter: a lot of folks are trying to still come to grips with why all of this happened. there have been a lot of discussions over the past week or so prompted by former president bill clinton's feeling about the political mood in this country, a similar mood that he says preceded this particular bombing. of course, timothy mcveigh said that the catalyst for his thinking that led to this tragedy was the april 19th, 1993 siege on the branch davidian compound in waco, texas. but however this ended, a lot of folks here want to remember the folks who gave their lives really in service to their country, tamron. >> thank you, ron mott. on this anniversary of the oklahoma city bombing we turn to the rising tide of antigovernment extremism. the southern poverty law center, which tracks antigovernment groups, say the number of so-called patriot groups across the country mushroome
when -- she could be the devil. she could say i hate america. i want to destroy america. and that way they'll only be able to say, why do you hate gay, immigrant, black, handicapped women. >> you know, senator, it's amazing how you can make a good living talking about a guy on a commuter train after three drinks. seriously. that's the kind of stuff i heard growing up. that kind of stuff is so uninspiring and yet i guess it has an audience. >> it wasn't just what you heard growing up. this is what glenn beck said during sotomayor. he said the same kind of stuff, attacking her, attacking her qualifications when she was number one in her class and done so well throughout her career calling her emotional and all of these things and it got out there. but in the end, you heard people like lindsey graham voting for her saying maybe he wouldn't have picked her but she was clearly qualified and he was proud to vote for her. in the end, she got confirmed. i think the hearings while they were difficult at times they were fair and that's what we want to see again. all this garbage and all of thes
in this story of america. what kind of african-american tourist would want to celebrate confederate history month, pat? is this just for white tourist? a push for tourism. >> the 175th anniversary. virginia was part of the old south confederacy. there's a lot of misinformation. virginia did not su seed over slavery. virginia stayed in the union at at the time of ft. sumpter. what took them out of the union when abraham lincoln said, we want 75,000 volunteers, your militia and your soldiers in the union to attack the deep south and bring them back to the union, they said we're not going to kill our kinsman. that's how virginia left the union. >> they refused to take sides against the union with the rebels? >> they refused to send their sons to kill their kinfolk. >> to bring back the union? >> kill their kinfolk. >> i think that's a technical point. virginia had slavery and believed in slavery and would have kept it had there not been a civil war. >> wait a minute. there were eight slave states in the union at the time of ft. sumpter and seven in the confederacy. >> gentlemen, that's not the

to nationalize the health care in the united states of america i turned to one of my colleagues on the floor and i said, this is it. we have got to file a repeal bill and he said, go for it. and so the next morning i was the first member of congress on the floor to slap down a bill to repeal obama care. >> do you believe that this bill that's passed into law is unconstitutional? >> well, i produced a 55-page report for indiana senator richard luger and in that report we question whether the federal government has the authority to mandate every individual to purchase a commercial product. this would be the first time in history that the federal government doesn't require you to join a program like medicaid or social security. all of those things are clearly constitutional. here you're saying that the federal government can require every person in the united states to purchase a commercial product. so i'm raising the question about the constitutionality and frankly i think it deserves a challenge. >> okay. and is this the only part of the health care law that you have a problem with? or are th
